I wanted to get back to Frenchboro during sailing season this summer, to give a print of the claw (A Night In Frenchboro) to Tammy Desjardin at The Offshore Store. She gave me the claw two years ago and I wanted her to have the image that her gift inspired. That was my incentive to produce an edition of Giclée Prints from this painting. About the same time that I was involved with proofing the color with my printer, some friends on the island started a conversation with me about a commission for a specific space in their dinning room: twenty feet over the entrance to a spectacular round room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking ocean vistas in one direction and beautiful gardens on the other side. We agreed on a composition of rocks with a lobster, but they were discouraged by how long they would have to wait for the painting. It struck me later that A Night In Frenchboro, which they like, IS a rock and lobster image, (albeit small rocks and a single giant claw), so I asked my printer if I could increase the scale of the image to fit the rectangular space in that dinning room without losing any of the resolution that is so important to seeing the voluminous details in my work. The result exceeded my expectation and delighted everyone who saw it. The large scale image has dramatic impact that works well in this big beautiful space.
Additional Giclée Prints available in two image sizes:
26 X 38 inches, edition of ten
13 X 19 inches, edition of twenty
